Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] SM Mizzen Furling System Gearbox Overhaul



Thanks for this and ALL of the other detailed instructions that you have shared with this group over the about 15 years that have been a member. I do not think anyone else has contributed more to the success of the Amel Owners Group than you have. I have been thinking about you and your beloved SM Liahona, lately and have been hoping for an update on the hurricane repair.

Hello and Merry Christmas to
Some time ago I promised to
write up and share my experience overhauling the mizzen
furling gearbox/cranking mechanism on the Super Maramu 2000.
 I found the file with the included pictures too large to
upload to this site.  Efforts to trim the picture sizes (at
least with my limited computer savvy) didn't help and so
this is an attempt to make that information available to the
group.  I have posted the file in my DropBox account and
here is a link to access it.

It is a
Word Doc file so let me know if that doesn't work and I
will post it as a PDF. 
I am
new to DropBox so let me know if this doesn't share
Bottom line is
that I can see few scenarios where the mizzen furling
"gearbox" needs to be disassembled.  The gears
can be lubed via other methods than disassembly, as depicted
in the document. 
All the
best,  Gary S. Silvers/v Liahona Amel
